The Walt Whitman Birthplace is listed as the starting point of the Walt Whitman Trail. The trail overlooks Route 110, covering the Western edge of Suffolk County and gives access to Jayne’s hill, a favorite place of Walt Whitman himself, and miles of hiking trails that include the Nassau-Suffolk Greenbelt Trail giving access to an additional 40 miles of trails.
It’s a fun trail for day hikers, strollers and lovers of nature. What better way to connect to Walt Whitman than to walk in his footsteps?
Below is a basic map of the Walt Whitman Trail. If you are interested in knowing more, the Walt Whitman Birthplace Gift Shop sells a $3.00 booklet that describes the trails in detail.
